Standing up to Seismic Blasting and Offshore Drilling

We have been preparing to fight five Incidental Harassment Authorizations (IHAs) allowing seismic airgun surveys in the Atlantic since the summer of 2017. The National Marine Fisheries Service issues these IHAs on November 30th, and once the Bureau of Ocean and Energy Management issues the seismic permits, the only thing standing in the way of massive airgun blasting in our waters is the adamant opposition of coastal communities, environmental advocates, and their lawyers.
